Quarterly Report


MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
AND FINANCIAL CONDITION

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and related notes thereto contained in this report. In this discussion, the words "Company", "we", "our" and "us" refer to J.W. Mays, Inc. and subsidiaries.

Forward Looking Statements:

The following can be interpreted as including forward looking statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The words "outlook", "intend", "plans", "efforts", "anticipates", "believes", "expects" or words of similar import typically identify such statements. Various important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements are identified under the heading "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" below. Our actual results may vary significantly from the results contemplated by these forward-looking statements based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, availability of labor, marketing success, competitive conditions and the change in economic conditions of the various markets we serve.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates:

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We believe the critical accounting policies in Note 1 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions. (See Note 1 on page 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements herein and Note 1 on pages 9 through 11 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2012).

Results of Operations:

Three months Ended April 30, 2013 Compared to the Three months Ended April 30, 2012:

In the three months ended April 30, 2013, the Company reported net income of $73,037, or $.04 per share. In the comparable three months ended April 30, 2012, the Company reported net income of $140,159, or $.07 per share.

Revenues in the current three months decreased to $3,704,426 from $4,185,661 in the comparable 2012 three months primarily due to two office tenants vacating the Company's Jowein building in Brooklyn, New York, partially offset by one new office tenant at the Company's Nine Bond Street, Brooklyn, New York building and one new office tenant at the Company's Jowein building in Brooklyn, New York.

Real estate operating expenses in the current three months increased to $2,154,463 from $1,918,185 in the comparable 2012 three months primarily due to increases in payroll costs, real estate taxes and utility costs.

Administrative and general expenses in the current three months decreased to $876,370 from $902,911 in the comparable 2012 three months primarily due to decreases in legal and professional costs, partially offset by increases in payroll costs.

Depreciation and amortization expense in the current three months increased to $404,479 from $395,827 in the comparable 2012 three months, primarily due to improvements to the Nine Bond Street, Brooklyn, New York building and the Jowein building in Brooklyn, New York.

Interest expense in the current three months exceeded investment income by $87,077 and by $115,364 in the comparable 2012 three months. The decrease in the excess of interest expense over investment income was due primarily to scheduled repayments of debt.

Nine months Ended April 30, 2013 Compared to the Nine months Ended April 30, 2012:

In the nine months ended April 30, 2013, the Company reported net income of $562,843, or $.28 per share. In the comparable nine months ended April 30, 2012, the Company reported net income of $826,081, or $.41 per share.

Real estate operating expenses in the current nine months increased to $6,607,728 from $6,042,225 in the comparable 2012 nine months primarily due to increases in maintenance costs, real estate taxes, payroll costs, utility costs, leasing commissions and a bad debt expense in the amount of $240,258 from a retail tenant that vacated the Nine Bond Street, Brooklyn, New York building, partially offset by decreases in licenses and permits costs.

Administrative and general expenses in the current nine months decreased to $2,673,644 from $2,788,877 in the comparable 2012 nine months primarily due to decreases in legal and professional costs.

Depreciation and amortization expense in the current nine months increased to $1,208,221 from $1,175,961 in the comparable 2012 nine months, primarily due to improvements to the Nine Bond Street, Brooklyn, New York building and the Jowein building in Brooklyn, New York.

Interest expense in the current nine months exceeded investment income by $253,990 and by $387,076 in the comparable 2012 nine months. The decrease in the excess of interest expense over investment income was due primarily to scheduled repayments of debt.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements:

This section, Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, other sections of this Report on Form 10-Q and other reports and verbal statements made by our representatives from time to time may contain forward-looking statements that are based on our assumptions, expectations and projections about us and the real estate industry. These include statements regarding our expectations about revenues, our liquidity, our expenses and our continued growth, among others. Such forward-looking statements by their nature involve a degree of risk and uncertainty. We caution that a variety of factors, including but not limited to the factors listed below, could cause business conditions and our results to differ materially from what is contained in forward-looking statements:

changes in the rate of economic growth in the United States;
the ability to obtain credit from financial institutions and at what costs;
changes in the financial condition of our customers;
changes in regulatory environment;
lease cancellations;
changes in our estimates of costs;
war and/or terrorist attacks on facilities where services are or may be provided;
outcomes of pending and future litigation;
increasing competition by other companies;
compliance with our loan covenants;
recoverability of claims against our customers and others by us and claims by third parties against us; and
changes in estimates used in our critical accounting policies.

Other factors and assumptions not identified above were also involved in the formation of these forward-looking statements and the failure of such other assumptions to be realized, as well as other factors, may also cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Most of these factors are difficult to predict accurately and are generally beyond our control. You should consider the areas of risk described above in connection with any forward-looking statements that may be made by us.

We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. You are advised, however, to review any additional disclosures we make in proxy statements, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Annual Reports on Form 10-K and Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
